Event Description

Understanding opportunities and challenges for women in the trucking industry

The biggest challenge in attracting women to the trucking industry, both at the driver level and the corporate level, is the male dominated image. How can the trucking industry better attract and retain women? At the corporate level, women comprise only 14 percent of management, and at the driver level, women comprise less than six percent of the workforce.

This conference by expert speaker Ellen Voie will highlight some of the reasons women aren’t promoted in the trucking industry. In the 60-minute session, Ellen will talk about growing opportunities as well as key challenges for women in the trucking industry. You will understand how to recruit women in this industry through proper images and words.

  • How to recruit women (drivers and managers) by understanding what women look for in a career move
  • How their recruiting efforts can be enhanced through proper images and words
